Tutorials and Recorded Workshops


TutorialsRecordedWorkshops.jpg We love our Workshop Series here at the Libraries, but we know that many of you aren't on campus during the day, or just can't find the time to come over to Walter Library for a class. Therefore we're adding as many online instruction options as possible. Our Tutorials and Online Workshops page lists three kinds of instruction, all available wherever you have your computer and an Internet connection:
  • Online Tutorials are short and targeted to specific tasks, like setting up a Refworks account or searching for books in MNCAT Plus.
  • Recorded workshops are recordings of the walk-in workshops we teach in the library. We just turn on the recording software and capture the screen and our voices.
  • Online Self-Paced Workshops are mostly Moodle pages. They typically contain the slides and handouts we use for the walk-in workshops, screenshots and how-tos for specific tasks, and links to additional resources on the topic.
Let me know if there are topics you'd like to see us cover, either as online instruction or walk-in workshops.
